MombasaWorks has opened its second and newest coworking location along Nkrumah road in Mombasa’s CBD. They are located inside the Oriental Building, a beautiful Mughal-inspired heritage building built in 1937 and lovingly maintained. With ancient teak floors, you still feel steeped in history, despite the remarkable transformation of the space’s interior.
The Space – bigger and better
The MombasaWorks mission is to enable entrepreneurs and small and growing business through flexible office facilities, networking, peer-learning, capacity development and collaboration. Their new space was designed with this mind. If you’ve visited their space in Nyali, you will not be disappointed with their newest location. They’ve gone bigger and better!
The space has 4 meeting rooms of varying size and style, some with writeable walls and smart TVs, others withmoveable furniture and beanbags. Their largest meeting room can hold 14 people for a training, and with moveable furniture, can be turned into an event room for cocktails or firesides.
Entrepreneurs and small and growing businesses do not need tons of idle space, so they introduced dedicated desks in a members-only zone and a dozen lockers and a strong room for storage.
The new space also has private office suites, able to sit between 2 to 6 people each. These are fully-furnished, with ergonomic seats, desks and storage space. As well as telephone extensions and air-conditions.
They wanted to offer as many options as possible for users to get a change of scenery during their work day. The coffee bar, equipped with coffee machines, lounge and chill room were introduced with this in mind. The entire space is air-conditioned, a cool respite from the sometimes intense heat of Mombasa island.
Being on the island, the space and location is also perfectly suited for frequent business travellers and agile teams.
